The Heart Has its Reasons : Looking Back Looking Ahead
The Heart Has Its Reasons, Looking Back Looking Ahead. What if we could look ahead while still looking back? What if hard-won insight was ours to use when we needed it? This short book puts such possibilities within our reach. In a series of brief articles, the author explains important thoughts in relating to God, oneself and others. These insights, gained with age and experience, nudge us to find a new path. Then the rest of our journey becomes transforming. With God back in the center, others in their rightful place, and we striving harder, our relationships could regain the luster they once had. The heart, the seat of love, looks back to learn lessons and looks ahead in hope. When lessons of the past become sentinels for the future, we gain peace and joy. To attain that state we must learn to open our hearts to God and others. The theme on the heart throbs in the two parts of the book: One, Love yourself and bleed for others; two, Love God above all else. Twenty-two chapters, a Prologue and an Epilogue resonate the theme. Here are some titles: * Reflections on the year gone by * Does evil serve a purpose? * Does pain heal? * How do we respond to those who offend us? * A crusade for healing * Why do we treat God so badly? The author does not stop at asking questions. In a simple and direct style he answers them - without preaching. Journey with him to look upon a new horizon! Praise for the book: "The thoughts are of Christian inspiration and stimulating, the language is mellifluous and racy, and the book makes pleasant reading. This is a valuable book that can surely help the interested reader towards betterment of self and society." Dr George Kaitholil, Author and Former General Editor of St. Pauls and Better Yourself Books.
